The car lost points for areas of the facia which could potentially be injurious to the front seat passenger's knees and
Side impact
In the side impact, forces transferred in an unrealistic manner up the test dummy’s spine, reducing the forces
recorded by the instrumentation in its chest. The car was penalised for this and the chest ended up scoring zero
points. The abdomen scored only 0.08 out of a possible 4 points as a result of the loads to which it was subjected
